Students in my Creative Computing and Creativity and Computation Lab courses were asked to show their work in the 2 W 13th Street, 10th floor exhibit space at Parsons. I’m really impressed with the efforts all the students made in preparing their work so far this semester, and thanks to the following students for exhibiting: [...]
For the past six months, I have been working with fellow MFA DT alums George Bixby and Jeanna Hamilton on the exhibition, DisFluency. Featuring works by Ricardo Dominguez, Brendan Fernandes, Nina Katchadourian, Erica Duffy-Voss, and Krzysztof Wodiczko, the aim of the exhibition is to examine universal aspects of inhibited communication by investigating synergies between works created in the areas of art and design. Additionally, we’re attempting to foster transdisciplinary participation across therapeutic, technological and pedagogical fields to investigate issues that affect fluent communication.
Within the clinical realm, ‘dysfluency’ is a diagnostic term for a speech disorder. By its very nature, the addition of the prefix ‘dys’ to fluency, negates the word and connotes dysfunction. Emerging from a common interest in how the act of stuttering affects the lives of stutterers, DisFluency examines how each of us is affected by compromised communication, and questions whether divergence from the fluent norm is always a ‘dys’.
The show will be on view at Aronson Gallery until December 19. There are a number of related events, so stop by when you have a chance.

Over the weekend, fellow classmate, Haeyoung Kim, let me know about Christian Marclay’s exhibit at the Paula Cooper Gallery, so I rode my bike up the West Side Highway and in to Chelsea. Sampling clips from thousands of films, the 24-hour video piece The Clock demonstrates time as a complex, central cinematic figure in its many forms and meanings.
The piece has a similar editing style to Marclay’s earlier work, with multiple film styles spliced together in both a jarring/cutting and swaying/lulling way, but the story that is told is much more suspenseful and edgy. Although the woman sitting next to me on the plush couches was falling asleep, I sat at the edge of my seat with a grin from ear to ear. The sound, woven beautifully by Media Noise’s Quentin Chiappetta, effectively carries the audience from suspense, to fear, to uneasy, to laughter.
After waiting in line for almost 30 minutes, I won the seat lottery and got a front row seat. The space was filled to capacity with many audience members sitting on the floor along the wall and in the back. A very helpful representative from the gallery provided guidance on when and where seats became available.
The show closes this Saturday (2/19), so get there if you can.
